Cranberry Sauce with Orange and Calvados
I make my own cranberry sauce every year it couldn’t be easier! You could also use the slow-cooker or make a fermented version (see here and here). However this is how I made mine this year- Cranberry Sauce with Orange and Calvados.
I really like the combination of cranberry and citrus (see my Cranberry and Kumquat Water Kefir here) so the orange is a nice sweetener and also adds a nice zest to the sauce. The Calvados serves a dual purpose- it works as a natural preservative whilst at the same time adds a deeper dimension which makes the sauce taste richer- just perfect for the Christmas Table. This will work well with pork (ham), chicken or lamb too not just with the Turkey.
I used fresh cranberries for this recipe but you can also use frozen.
